Unless there’s some trade action on Day 2 for the Las Vegas Raiders, they’ll be making their first pick of the NFL Draft at number 86. The question is, what will they do once it’s their turn?
After executing what was arguably the biggest trade of the NFL offseason, Raiders general manager Dave Ziegler will have to wait until the third round today to begin drafting.
However, we shouldn’t put a trade outside the realm of possibility as Ziegler has proven to be a highly intelligent executive. Let’s face it, no one saw the Davante Adams trade coming.
While the acquisition of Adams puts the team in a position to be a playoff contender, there’s still a lot of work to be done with the roster. Several key positions on the roster need a boost after a busy free agency period that saw improvements to wide receiver as previously mentioned, but the team’s pass rush was also upgraded with Chandler Jones, so the need for an edge rusher dissipates.
With that being said, which route will the Silver and Black take?
